    Very nice Ryan. I like you song choices, even the pirate. :)
    And I agree, you have too much time on your hands. That's a lot of sequencing.

    Very nice, ryan :D

    One question though, what type of mirror ball did you use?

    I used a basic 8" infinity brand mirror ball. Had it since 2004. It has a battery operated motor (bit of a pain when I'm not around at 8:30 or 10:30 to switch on/off). There are no lights on the motor itself unlike some of the other options available today. The mirror ball is detachable from the motor easily and not permanently fixed (I remove the mirror ball each night for fear of it being stolen after hours)

    I'm using two older style incandescent pin spots, one has a rotating colour wheel. I had plans originally to change the pinspots over to RGB DMX versions but I think I'll stick with what I have and when it burns out, that'll be that. ;)

    Both the mirror ball, pin spots, and colour wheel all came from a light and sound hire/sales shop.
